Honestly I think that speaks to the arrogance of coaching at the NFL level.
I've said much of this myself, though it seems more a "group-think" that said 'Elvis too small.'
You're either born to sack, or you're not. Elvis, Quanterus and Von were, and - no matter how high they were drafted - Aaron Curry, DJ Williams and Robert Ayers were not. Former three led the nation in sacks, latter three all had skimpy sack totals in college.
